Towards a Beatitudinal church
Our vision is to create a global network of Catholic reform and other Christian and Ecumenical groups that actively embraces diversity and actively works to include groups marginalized by the hierarchical Church.
To bring together a global, lay-led Christian network for transformational change, firm in the belief of the equal worth and value of all people.
To welcome all reform-minded people, including people from ecumenical communities, the religious & clergy. Women leaders, absent from the hierarchical RCC are especially welcomed. We’re grateful also for support from other Faiths.
To explore theological questions about sexuality, gender and identity, challenging the ideology underpinning the myths of the Teaching Church
Drawing on the lessons of civil rights movements we will be bold in our pursuit of radical and incremental reform.
To denounce clerical power abuse in all its forms.
Our aim is to operate a decentralized, ‘flat’ structure for our network (Heterarchy).
